graphic design booksEnvisioning Information
We felt this summed it up pretty well.... Amazon Reader Review: "Envisioning Information is Tufte's best work. It is a catalog of world class information design examples, culled by the author [including] examples from sources as diverse as Gallileo's observations of Saturn, a 3D map of a Japanese shrine... color studies by the artist Joseph Albers, and a New York train schedule. This is not a "how to" book, but rather a group of inspiring examples... painstakingly argued and illustrated. Tufte is obsessed with quality... One of the best books I have ever read when it comes to visual design!" Edited for length - FS. Format: Hardcover, 126pp. Owned by DT: Yes.
